MyParang Golok 135 Heavy is Unker Buzz first parang or machette from MyParang – an authentic parang or golok from Penang, Malaysia.
He was so impressed by MyParang Golok 135 Heavy that he bought another MyParang product namely Duku Chandong 12″ Heavy – I personally tested Duku Chandong and love it. Unker Buzz love big blades! And the 12″ Heavy model has thicker blade stock and a beast of a chopper!
MyParang Golok 135 Heavy is a premium parang different from Bidor Parang. While the blade stock come from Bidor, the traditional wooden curve handle design is made from eco-Beech sourced from Croatia and the blade is secured by 3.5mm pin behind the brass collar bolster and epoxied to the rat-tail blade tang. Each blade has a beautiful forged marks (thank you Ahmad Nadir!) and a brush finish.

Unker Buzz has made some changes to the finger choil making it a little rounder and the handle to fit his hands. There was nothing wrong with the original design, in fact it works right out of the box. He just wanted to make MyParang Golok 135 Heavy to his own personal taste and feel.
